move forward? this raises the bar for romney and for obama. so i think our next debate is going to be a little more livelier, jon. jon: cory, even big obama supporters like bill maher, bill maher tweeted out during the debate that it looks like president obama doesn't even realize he is showing up here for a job interview. >> well, jon, there is no question about it that mitt romney did a good job of exceeding dramatically low expectations. definitely won the expectations game, right. jon: if he won the debate? that is more than exceeding low expectations, isn't it? >> i think so. >> but here's the point, the point is at end of the day debates about specifics. this was very substantive debate last night. even the president at the end thought it was a very good conversation but i think his strongest point throughout the night when he pointed out, you know, the governor romney's ideas apparently are too good to communicate to the american people. he wants to keep them a secret. doesn't want to tell us how he will pay for this tax cut. he doesn't want to tell us how he will pay for

that obviously is going to be a problem for whatever president's next but not something president obama wants to be talking about right now. >> with iran obviously they're having sort of its own singular way inserting itself in the elections. we heard from ahmadinejad last week and heard from netanyahu literally drawing that red line on the metaphor kal bomb. >> right. >> could we hear from iran between now and say november 6th? >> well, this is pretty amazing. obviously when prime minister netanyahu spoke, there was a sigh of relief. not just in the obama administration but many who said, look, the deadline is next spring, next summer. there isn't going to be a possible israeli military strike before the election. but iran is doubling down. just today prime minister ahmadinejad back in tehran gave a press conference. and he said this, brooke, i'll quote him "we are not people to retreat on the nuclear issue. if somebody thinks they can pressure iran, they are certainly wrong and must correct their behavior." at least in terms of words, which actions are more important than words, but in term
in history. host:next is ann, a president obama supporter. caller: good morning. i think exactly the opposite. i think mitt romney looked almost manic and his appearance. i have never seen him flailing his arms around. he told so many lies. he completely turned around all of the things he has been running on the for the past 18 months. he even through the tax policy away. he just changed everything. it was really unbelievable. i think many people looked at him being more aggressive. that is what they were rewarding. once people started paying attention to exactly why he said, they would see that his -- that he told so many lies and distorted what he was trying to say. i think the president look very presidential. he was not aggressive. he explained exactly what he wanted to say. i thought the whole purpose of the debate was for each one to explain what their policy was. romney just completely changed. that is what was so -- i guess it is not so surprising, because that is what he has done is flip-floping. i hope the president would get an ad out or they show what he has been saying and what h

the mediterranean. 29 in athens. actually see one more burst of warmth in the next couple days here in the southeast. leave you now to your extended forecast. >>> our top story once again. barack obama and mitt romney have met for their first debate. one month ahead of the presidential election. they spent most of their time are gug ov arguing over the economy. the debate took place in denver, colorado, one of the few battleground states that could decide the election. candidates concentrated on how to revive the economy. >> the only way to meet governor romney's pledge of not reducing the deficit, or, not -- adding to the deficit, is by burdening middle-class families, now that's -- not my analysis. >> the president has a view very similar to the view he had when he ran four years ago. that a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, if you will, trickle-down government would work. that's not the right answer for america. >> romney kept attacking obama, and ignoring the moderator's instructions. obama some times had trouble getting a word in. many u.s. media analysts say romne
greater growth in the second quarter of ?iew and still lost than president obama had in this quarter so the economy is worse off. i also know that unemployment is higher than it was under george walker bush. i can't say for sure, but i think the next highest unemployment rate that a president's been re-elected at was 7.2% under reagan. i can't say for sure, but i think it was under 6.5% for george hw bush. i don't know what the inflation rate or interest rate was, but the economy was in better shape in 1992 by any objective measure than it has in 2012 so president obama's in big trouble. >> hi, i just want to take the opportunity to thank you because you use your gifted brain and your considerable verbal skills, writing skills, energy, and fly all over. i'm grateful you're able to do that. >> my great pleasure, thank you. >> my question is what can little people, individual little people do the best right now to support mitt romney? i was a rick santorum supporter, and i'm grateful to have seen it play out. when everybody was played out, now it seems like we're all standing strong and f
that's important. so i think that any obama supporter who really loves the president is a little worried that maybe sometimes he may speak longer than the evening news and the morning news the next day is able to cover in full. >> as someone who's moderated four debates with him can testify to that. congressman, to you, what's the biggest weakness governor romney has. i've moderated four debates with him as well. >> there's so much material to attack the president on -- >> no. not the president. romney's biggest weakness. >> well, i think part of the challenge is how do you succinctly get to that and at the same time when you only have 90 seconds or 120 seconds to answer a question then also be able to share your vision and your compassion to the voters that are watching at home. to be able to contrast the president's record and his vision, share with that in a compassionate way, that's challenging to do in 120 seconds. >> here's a big challenge that the president has, bill. look at this. likely voters we asked who will win the presidential debate? 56% said the president. 32% sai

states. and that raises his stature. so for the first time the voters will see him standing there next to the president, look at him and see how presidential he looks. that helps. that has helped previous candidates. that helped reagan against carter. that helped obama in 2008 against -- that was different because mccain wasn't president. but it helps when you're a challenger and you stand there next to the president of the united states it can raise your stature and that can help romney. >> can i put you on the spot and ask you who you think is going to fare better? >> oh, boy. you know, i've been wrong on so many predictions. >> that's okay. >> look my basic view of this is that by the time we get into october, a lot of voters have made up their mind. undecided voters, early voting has already started. >> are you -- >> i'm getting to it. downplay the drama of the debates but the truth is, you know, historically the conventions have mattered a lot more than the debates. and by this time in the campaign, it's really hard to change. >> that's true but sometimes they have mattered, right
. court watchers expect one or more of them to retire during the course of the next presidency. which justices leave and whether the replacement is nominated by romney or obama could tip the balance of the court. i think back to the contentious health care decision, that 5-4 outcome, this may not be exciting stuff, but it is exciting if you're following it like we are. it is so, so important. wasn't to bri i want to bring in joe johns. president obama already put not just one but two justices on the current court. you know, reading into the supreme court tea leaves if you will, does that give us a pretty good idea as to who might be on the short list, if and when he's re-elected, and a vacancy perhaps pops open. >> well, i think so. you never know in these things, brooke, but if president obama were re-elected and got the opportunity to select a replacement, one of the names, interesting enough, that we have been hearing a lot is kamala harris, the california attorney general, also mentioned as a possible nominee for the united states attorney general if eric holder were to step down.
that this was a preplanned attack and yet the obama administration, the white house, the president, all of the individuals involved, spent the course of the next week or so denying that. what's going on here? is this incompetence? is it confusion, or, is it a deliberate, intentional cover-up? >> i think it is deliberate to downplay the threats because clearly the narrative that the obama campaign has been trying to push that usama bin laden is dead and al qaeda is crushed and we know that is not true. like a balloon, if you crush the balloon and just looking at the front of it looks like al qaeda may be dead but you missed the fact that it is popping out in all these other areas. gregg: what white house press secretary jay carney and u.n. ambassador susan rice were telling the american people, not to mention the folks on capitol hill, was simply untrue. they were doing that for more than a week as we mentioned. now the latest offering up an explanation is general james clapper, the director of national intelligence. and here's his explanation and or excuse depending upon your point of view. we'll put it o
that romney separates his campaign. they know now the most important between this debate and the next one not to blow the momentum. to blow on that fire and make it larger and not douse it. >> what's the challenge for the obama campaign? >> reporter: to bounce back. two very significant democrats who i talked to last night looking at the debates said i would call the debate trading places. mitt romney's back was against the wall now the president's back is against the wall and he needs a much sharper, much more passionate debate performance or people will not have the confidence that he has what it takes for a second term and a vision to carry that through. >> major, let me read you a tweet this morning. it says this wasn't a debate so much as mitt romney took obama for a cross country drive strapped to the roof of his car. so what is the spin that the white house is putting on what happened to the president last night to explain it? >> reporter: well the white house knows that the president was on the low end of the energyic scale. they are calling that presidential and slightly differen
're thinking about right now is what's going to be the tone of mitt romney and president obama? what they want to know is what are you going to do? how are you going to make my life better over the next four years? we spent more time focused, talking about what -- when i say we i mean a broad media. superficial stuff, what color tie they have on, how are they standing, were they sighing as opposed to what had did they say? that's what matters to somebody sitting out there. >> this comes to someone criticizing the color of my tie before. >> dude, think about it. you need some color. >> governor strickland, i'm surprised how optimistic he s he sounds like the race is over and that obama has this sewn up. >> sour surrogate. >> kudos to him for saying what he believes. usually they play expectations down, talk about what a great debater obama is and how terrible romney strickland was sounding like it's over. >> i'm so tired of playing down expectations. >> me, too. romney is promising to honor temporary work permits for younger illegal immigrants who were allowed to remain in the u.s. after that e
in a database or online from a group. that would be my guess where you go next. the other political thing will happen is that whatever the outcome of the election, democrats use this as a populist appeal. they say they are with the working guy. i think obama signals that he would pursue a constitutional amendment. did he said is not possible. he may go door-to-door on this. some polls suggest the eu would be lower by it used to be just an last few cycles, that that was it beauregard's -- a bar partisan rally. there is a potential for one party to take this as a baton. >> at the same time the bipartisan ground has disappeared, it has become a much bigger issue among democrats. senator find gold was a patsy to the democratic leadership. in many ways, that was a miracle. what you have now in the previous congress until 2010, led a majority of democrats supporting the fair elections now act. it is deeply imbedded at the highest levels. of the have not really seen that before. if democrats were to take back the house, potentially, you have a different political scenario. republicans would have
